Forum: GratefulDead Subject: A question for those of you that have used mail order for your GD /Dead tickets

How long does it take to get a response and find out if you are getting tickets? The first day for mail order was Monday, and I imagine my order arrived yesterday or today. Do they contact you via email to let you know if you are getting tickets? I'd like to find out before the public onsale (which is, I think, Dec 11).

Any idea of when I can expect to hear back?

Chris, I faxed my info yesterday and yet to hear anything.I shot the Gdtstoo an email to see if they could verify recieving and they replied with this - Hi Sam,
I am sorry but we cannot tell if an individuals order is here or not.
We will send an email blast out letting folks know the status of each show before the outlet on sale date.
Rose
So if I hear more I will let you know. Take care

Hi Chris - For the Furthur shows, I didn't actually mail in a request for tickets, which is what I think you're referring to. I filled out the online form, with credit card info, etc., and I believe I got an instant confirm of my purchase. Then, it took several weeks for the actual tickets to be mailed, with no follow up communication in between.

I hope you're able to see Furthur - it was a really enjoyable night out.

Thanks for the response.

I would've done a CC order, but they are not taking CC orders for the venue in Atlanta. I wonder why it's not set up like The Dead was...I was able to go to musictoday or something like that and order tickets with a CC. I wouldn't be so paranoid but I expect this show to sell out (the venue I'm going to only holds 2600 people).

Did you go to the Oakland shows?

Oh, I see... I was wondering why you would go the mail-in route. Without a doubt they'll sell out, so I understand your concern.

I went to the first Oakland show, and had a great time, though my first review the day after kind of emphasized the negative (I could have been nursing a mild hangover).

The small venue made a huge difference to me, and general admission in a small place made it much more feasible for even a non-pushy type like me to make it up real close to the stage! Have a good time...

We used to use Ticketron... it was like ticketmaster and mafia mixed. They would buy general admission tickets in bulk for $17 and then sell them for $35 and up as the date approached.... anyone ever heard of them?

Mostly I was either given a ticket or bought them from... mobile sub contracting local vendors in the parking lot... when they had pretzels and $1 beers as well you could get a package deal... and some counterfeit shirts.

I had no trouble purchasing for the Tabernacle show in Atlanta with a card. I went to the bottom of the tour dates and clicked on the link to the right and went right to purchasing.

Where did you find that? On the GDTS page it says there are no CC orders for the Tabernacle. Bastards!

Ok, my dumbass found it. I reckon I just assumed there were no CC orders because GDTS wasn't taking them. Bad move. Ah well, hopefully I'll find out something before too much longer.
